Music lessons are based on the individual's ability to progress at a satisfactory pace.
Other styles and methods may be introduced to complement the individual's ability and/or extend their range of skills.
There are many pathways to achieve the "end result" - the end result being: to play a song in your room, to play in front of friends and family, to sit an exam, to perform at school, in a concert or in a group. It is your choice!
Practice makes perfect
An AFL player, marathon runner, swimmer all have one thing in common.... they practise!
We need to practise to be good writers, spellers, mathematicians, speakers, workers, drivers....even musicians have to practise!
Some music pupils may be confronted with challenges - musically, but encouragement, commitment, persistence and drive will help them overcome any mini hurdles and conquer their goals. This IS the road to success!
Anyone can become a musician
Most individuals have an equal chance of becoming a competent musician!
As a music tutor, I use various teaching techniques and methods so that an individual
can understand what is required in order for them to play their piece of music.
Over the years, I have received numerous positive feedback from both adults and parents of children regarding the way in which I teach, demonstrate and convey new skills.
